I have a source, who wishes to remain anonymous, that recently answered questions about the high-quality, ultra realistic KO's status.

Please note that the exact phrases have been changed slightly.

:
1. Are KO's banned from ebay?
Yes, ebay has taken off all KO Transformers from their auction sites. It is a violation of their policy.

2. Where can I find those high qualities KO's besides eBay?
We are not sure; you might try with your regular channel to obtain KO Transformers. It is quite difficult to buy now. And also Hasbro has taken action against sellers to protect their Transformer Intellectual property which belongs to them. Some of the online shops were told to take off the KO transformers, if not Hasbro will take legal action against them.

3. Any new releases for KO Transformers planned?
There are scheduled to be releases of Cyclonus, Scourge and Snarl. But with the current situation it becomes uncertain. To date Devastator and Reflector are still available.

4. And the status of Sunstreaker and Wheeljack?
No information from supplier. There is a rumor that the manufacturer has a lack of funds, but no confirmation yet.

5. The Future of KO Transformers?
With all of this banning on KO Transformers, we are not certain.


So will HASBRO's actions put the final nail into the KO coffin? It seems likely based on this information, but as the source stated, no one is sure where things are going, but it appears that signs are not good for the KO's future. Maybe, just maybe, HASBRO sees the desire for these expensive KO's and will work to re-establish their re-issue (Commemorative) line in the future, and fill the demand for new collectors to get representations of what are now old, and rather expensive items.

The KO market was making this an affordable way to collect for some, whether you agree with it is something else entirely.

The Transformers Live Action Movie Blog and TFW2005.com have received confirmation that the "2" from "Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen" has been dropped. Paramount is now opting for the simpler title "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen"

Please note that, in order to be concise, the film's title will still be referred to (by fans and by site staff) as either "TF2" or "ROTF." It is also worth noting that Michael Bay's official site still has the title listed as "Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen" (see here).

The threesome of Shia Labeouf, Megan Fox, and Ramon Rodriguez seemed to be in a little bit of a silly mood, as they filmed this particular scene.

The three 'skip' the shoot as Bumblebee and friends 'watch'. We do get a nice view of Bumblebee alt mode, and some interesting commentary from the camera operator about the bystanders being oblivious.



Thanks to 'EfrainQuinones' and the Transformers Live Action Movie Blog for showing the lighter side of the actors.

Omega Supreme






Savvy Transformers collectors know that Omega Supreme was produced by Toy Box and originally sold as MechaBot-1. Toy Box was absorbed by TakaraTomy a few years ago, which gave them the rights to the figure. Images of the original toy and package have been posted on the Takara site. Could this be a pre-image of a new Omega Supreme exclusive?

As a reminder, eHobby is releasing an Omega Supreme exclusive re-colored as a Guardian City Robot (Omega Sentinel)

SDCC has updated their website with more information and pictures for the exclusive Skywarp and Nemesis Prime figures.

Classics Nemesis Prime
“This lowly warrior was reconstructed to be the very image of OPTIMUS PRIME. This NEMESIS PRIME figure has the shape of the mighty AUTOBOT leader, but his gray and black deco makes this figure unique. TRANSFORMERS VOYAGER CLASS figure changes from robot-mode to vehicle-mode and back again. Figure wields a wind vane that becomes an ion blaster, and a smokestack that becomes a laser cannon in robot mode! This HasbroToyShop.com exclusive launches at San Diego Comic-Con 2008!”






Titanium Skywarp
"This authority-indifferent seeker is now part of the Transformers Titanium Series brand. Standing 6" tall, this incredible figure includes display stand and case. Awesome detailed die-cast metal. TRANSFORMERS figure changes from robot-mode to vehicle-mode and back again. This HasbroToyShop.com exclusive launches at San Diego Comic-Con 2008!"







The San Diego Comic Convention runs from July 24th – 27th. The number of each figure to be produced has not been announced yet. Previous SDCC exclusive Transformers figures, like Alternator Nemesis Prime and Hot Rod were available after the event.

HK-TF.com has posted information from a recent Takara retailer catalogue about 4th Quarter 2008. The catalogue confirms the release dates that were announced earlier this week for the Masterpiece, Henkei, and Alternity series.

The most interesting information is that in December, Takara will begin their 25th Anniversary marketing project. There is no further information at this time, but older fans will remember that the 20th Anniversary gave us many great reissued and new figures.
